Completely opposite of the work I do outdoors, sometimes people want to have their shots done indoors with a plain solid background. To me, that kind of a headshot can be very powerful in it's own right. In this type of headshot, there is absolutely nothing to distract anyone looking at the picture. There is only a sole point of focus and that is the actor.
I added this gallery because we had such fun shooting these and I wanted to share them with people. It's great when you find someone who is willing to play with you in front of the camera and experiment to see what can be captured. Thank you Elena!!!
Shooting outdoors can be challenging, but also extremely rewarding. One of the main reasons I enjoy shooting outdoors is because I am able to capture a cinematic quality in the picture that creates a depth and emotional reaction for the person looking at the photo.
Thank you for visiting my photography site. As a photographer, I get to see people from a different perspective. And what I love most about it is the challenge to capture a person's truth. The essence of their being. There is a huge difference between getting a good picture of someone and getting a great Headshot for an actor. For me, it's not enough to take an attractive picture of someone. What I truly strive for is to capture the life behind their eyes. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. If that is true, then I have to be sure to make sure my clients get to tell their stories in their own words. Not mine. Please take a look inside the galleries and let me know if I can help you get the headshots that you are looking for.
